Star Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and his BIG group have revealed their plans to revamp the Manhattan skyline with the final tower at the World Trade Center site.
In a video released by BIG on Wednesday, Ingels shows off his design for Two World Trade Center, a glass tower made up of seven stacked cubes with green roofs.

“The completion of the World Trade Center will restore the majestic skyline of Manhattan and unite the streetscapes of TriBeCa with the towers Downtown. To complete this urban reunification we propose a tower that will feel equally at home in TriBeCa and the World Trade Center,” Ingels says in the video.
“From the World Trade Center, the individual towers will appear unified, completing the colonnade of towers framing the 9/11 Memorial. Horizontal meets vertical. Diversity becomes unity,” he adds.
